If the Patriots do choose to half methods with Invoice Belichick this offseason, the legendary head coach shouldn’t have any scarcity of potential suitors.

A workforce with an already proficient roster in place just like the Chargers has been talked about by Julian Edelman and others as a viable touchdown spot for Belichick. 

Cam Newton mapped out a situation the place a determined proprietor like Carolina’s David Tepper opens up the checkbook for a coach with Belichick’s resume. 

However might one other premier NFL franchise just like the Dallas Cowboys come calling if Belichick does hit the open market?

Former Patriots QB and present 98.5 The Sports activities Hub radio host Scott Zolak put credence in such a situation on Tuesday.

“I’m simply saying, properly, if everyone assumes it. All people I discuss to assumes it,” Zolak stated on “Zolak & Bertrand” on Tuesday. “I don’t know nothing. Nothing would actually shock me. If he comes again, that wouldn’t shock me. That might be you’re getting a clearance in your scouting division, in your entrance workplace. That’s getting cleaned out, if he comes again there’s purpose he’s again.”

At first look, a coach who relishes full management over a workforce’s operations — each on the sphere and so far as personnel selections are involved — doesn’t appear to mesh properly with an concerned proprietor like Jerry Jones.

But when Dallas as soon as once more fails to orchestrate a deep postseason run underneath coach Mike McCarthy in January, Jones might choose to usher in a coach like Belichick so as to put his roster excessive.

“To me, it’s beginning to form up Dallas. You see the Dallas swoon beginning to start,” Zolak stated. “They received their (expletive) kicked by Buffalo two days in the past. Buffalo did what they needed with them. You line it up and also you have a look at them, they received a giant offensive line, good working again, marquee quarterback. You bought good receivers. You bought good cowl guys. You bought Lawrence Taylor Jr. in No. 11 (Micah Parsons). You bought a giant line of defense and good safeties.

“It’s turnkey for Invoice,” Zolak added. “And he went proper over in pregame and shook the fingers of Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones.”
